By Alyssa Dalton
February 10, 2012 – Tantalus, a provider of smart grid communication systems, is now offering the factory-integrated, TUNet-compatible Itron Sentinel C&I (commercial and industrial) meter, equipped with Tantalus communication modules. The meter will allow utilities to provide real-time interval data, demand measurements, real-time power quality monitoring, and demand reset capabilities to their high-use C&I customers. The expanded functionality positions the utility to offer a significantly greater level of customer support while simultaneously enabling C&I customers to manage costs and complex pricing schedules more quickly and effectively, explain the companies.
